When Mexican-American teenagers Aristóteles Mendoza and Dante Quintana meet in a swimming pool and form an extraordinary bond. The work of 'Ari' Mendoza will be played by actor Max Pelayo, while Dante Quintana will be rejuvenated by Reese Gonzales.

What Aitch Alberto says about the tape

"Fundamentally, Ari and Dante tell a tale of self-discovery and recognition," Aitch Alberto said in a statement.

"My own excursion helped me understand that there is nothing more meaningful than standing up and fully tolerating what our identity is and being seen by it."

"I am motivated to focus on masculine weakness that incorporates a more understanding and empathetic outlook that reclassifies manhood, explicitly for the Latino group of people. To say that this is a small glimpse of heaven would be to say little" concluded Aitch Alberto.
